The branch associations FME-CMW and GMV China, organized a Dutch Trade Mission to Shanghai and Beijing, China from the 4th to 9th of November. The Mission was aimed at operations and export managers from companies that want to make the step in search of setting-up production and sales in China. The delegation consisted of companies that focus on two of nine key business sectors; Agro-food and High-Tech Manufacturing, sectors in which the Dutch government had implemented international economic policies over the past few years.

During their visit to Changzhou, the participants visited the Changzhou Industrial Incubation Initiative (CI3). This is a 13,000 square meter area that consists of manufacturing and office space, in the Wujin Economic Zone (WEZ), Jiangsu province. There, companies are able to create a cost-effective establishment that includes the development of their own production and sales facilities in China.

In the morning, Zvi Shalgo (CEO, PTL Group) gave a presentation about the opportunities for Dutch SMEs in the Chinese market, and the challenges in managing production and distribution channels in China. Afterwards, the participants went for a guided tour within the CI3 compound.

Hoe kunt u uw HR activiteiten in China het beste managen om maximaal resultaat te behalen? Wilt u meer weten over de beste aanpak van deze uitdagende vraagstukken? U kunt zich nu inschrijven.

Adecco, PTL Group en Bonnard Lawson organiseren op 27 november een seminar over specifiek aan China gerelateerde HR onderwerpen. Dit seminar is bedoeld voor HR-managers, DGA’s of managers verantwoordelijk voor China en voor bedrijven in de technologische en industriële sector die zelf lokaal in China aanwezig (willen) zijn.

Tijdens het seminar komen veelgevraagde onderwerpen aan bod zoals:

  • hoe vind ik goed gekwalificeerde mensen in China?
  • hoe stuur ik mijn management in China op afstand aan?
  • hoe behoud ik mijn mensen en hoe vergroot ik hun motivatie en loyaliteit?
  • hoe ga ik om met salaris, sociale premies en secundaire arbeidsvoorwaarden?
  • kies ik voor expats en/of Chinees management?

De invulling van deze en andere HR-vraagstukken bepalen uiteindelijk mede het succes van uw onderneming in China.

Ervaringsdeskundigen zullen verder ingaan op de volgende aspecten:

1. Het managen van de Westerse/Chinese management interface door Zvi Shalgo, CEO PTL Group
De interface tussen Westers en Chinees management is complex en leent zich goed voor miscommunicatie, onbegrip en uiteindelijk met gevolg het falen van het Chinese avontuur. Concreet met voorbeelden van wat mis kan gaan en suggesties voor wat u wel- en wat u zeker niet moet doen.

2. Arbeidsrecht in China door Choy Yiu Chan, Nederlands advocaat en lokaal partner bij Bonnard Lawson International Law Firm in Shanghai
Belangrijke aspecten worden toegelicht met een vergelijking tussen arbeidsrecht en gerelateerde culturele onderwerpen in Nederland en China met praktijkvoorbeelden omtrent mogelijkheden in de arbeidsovereenkomst voor werkgevers, ontslag en verantwoordelijkheden van werknemer en werkgever.

3. Salarissen en beloningssystemen in China door Alessandro Tiberia, Implementation and Sales Support Director van de Adecco Group
Kwesties rond vaste en variabele beloning, salarisniveaus voor verschillende functies, sociale premies voor werknemer/werkgever, de regionale verschillen en betalingen vanuit China en buiten China.

Locatie
Dit seminar vindt plaats in het Postillion Hotel te Utrecht/Bunnik op dinsdag 27 november aanstaande van 15:00 – 19:00 uur, inclusief een aansluitende netwerkborrel.
